About this movie

Three kindly old men, indistinguishable from the half-forgotten ranks of senior citizens you might pass on any city park bench in warm weather, decide to light up the dimming twilight of their lives with a last blaze of glory – by sticking up a Manhattan bank in broad daylight. A very distinguished, not to mention award-winning star trio – George Burns, Art Carney and Lee Strasberg – generates just the right charm, crust and comedy as the not-yet-over-the-hill desperados in this slyly funny and unexpectedly moving feature-film directorial debut of Martin Brest (Beverly Hills Cop, Scent of a Woman). For lump-in-your-throat laughter, Going in Style is an entertainment steal.
